The feels. All of the feels. All of them.

Kevin Durant was awarded the NBA Most Valuable Player Award today and his acceptance speech is without a doubt an instant classic!

The MVP may have been singled out as a superstar, but Kevin made the ceremony about his team and thanked each and everyone of them individually for making him the player that he is!

The tears were FLOWING! If you enjoy seeing grown men cry, have we got a video for you.

But the real emotions came when Kev broke down during a special recognition for his mother, Wanda Pratt.

Durant spoke about the sacrifices his mom made for him growing up, saying through tears:

"You made us believe. Kept us off the street. Put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn't eat, you made sure we ate. You sacrificed for us. You're the real MVP.”

Wanda was in the front row, wiping away tears from her own face.

And we were doing the same thing!

BEYOND SWEET!

You're a class act, Mr. Durant and 100% deserving of this honor!

Congratz!!!
